1: To not achieve one's goals.
2: To recieve a grade of less than 60/100 on a test.
3: A word which has become an instant giveaway for stupid teenage fucks who think they are clever because they say things like "EPIC FAIL" or "YOU FAIL". Originally, these and other stupid phrases incorporating the word "fail" were given birth within internet cesspots such as 4chan, but they have rapidly found acceptance among the adolescent population as the new, cool thing to say.
It is likely to become another pseudo-intellectual word popularized by the internet- further examples including words such as existentialism.
1: I wanted to fuck her in the ass, but even after I said that she'd do it if she really loved me, she said no. I failed.

2: At the DMV I scored a 15/100 on the Alcohol and Substance Abuse test. Suffice to say, I failed.

3: "You've never seen Donnie Darko? YOU FAIL."
"You don't like Napolean Dynamite? YOU FAIL."
"You think My Chemical Romance sucks the fucking sack?
YOU FAIL."
"My mom made me clean my room? FAIL."
"Eat my brocolli and carrots? I DON'T WANT TO. YOU AND
MOM ARE MADE OF FAIL."

Formerly used to describe the situation of not achieving the desired result in an undertaking considered to be somewhat important or monumental. In the context of performance in regards to the completion of a a test: to achieve a sub-par result, usually less than 70%.

Currently used by mindless sheep to commemorate the lack of desired intention, especially in regards to the most inconsequential of actions. No longer applies in the context of not passing a test (due to educational standards being so low that achievement of less than 70% is essentially impossible if one is not retarded).

One of the twenty words used in the "new" English language that is comprised completely of buzzwords.
Future Intellectual #1: (drops piece of paper)

A lack of success, a poor mark on an examination, to dwindle or become insufficient. A verb used without object. Currently at an all time high for generic, widespread misuse. The act of FAILURE being the most often intended and correct conjugation, which seems largely to have been forgotten.
Saying something was a FAIL is incorrect, and should be described as a FAILURE.
To misuse this word is to fail

Your rampant misuse of the word is a failure.

A usually unpleasant and uproariously funny lack of success. Usually used by teens and those idiots that hang around internet chat rooms (no one likes them).

Fail-The classic fail. Implying no success, and a heavy emphasis on idiocy and retardation.
Epic Fail-A Fail above the normal Fail. Implying even heavier emphasis on the sheer lunacy of the event.
Ultra Fail-Failing to the point of absolute horror and insanity. Only several Ultra Fails are known to be in existence today.
Teacher: Johnny, would you like to come up to the board and explain the word failure for us?
Johnny: Uh, so it's when you do stuff, and stuff happens that's bad and stuff.
Teacher: Very good! Would you please spell it for the class?
Johnny: F-A-Y-L-Y-U-R
Teacher: Please excuse me, Johnny, but you FAIL.
